What is addiction treatment? It is comprehensive treatment that is designed to help addicted individuals stop using drugs and alcohol. Because addiction affects everyone differently, there are several types of addiction treatment.

Detox removes toxic substances from the body. It is typically the first step in addiction treatment. 

Residential treatment addresses an individual's psychological dependence on drugs and alcohol while providing them a safe and supervised living environment. It is ideal for those who would like around-the-clock care and support. 

Outpatient treatment allows individuals to receive substance abuse treatment convenient to their schedule. It is perfect for individuals with busy professional lives or those who are unable to leave their family behind.

Medication-assisted treatment uses addiction medications to help individuals manage their cravings and withdrawal symptoms, allowing them to focus on other aspects of their recovery. Medication-assisted treatment is only used to treat alcohol and opioid addiction. Everyone's road to recovery is different. It is important to find the treatment that fits your recovery goals.
